Deep Listening Institute presents the first open house for its project Adaptive Use Musical Instruments (AUMI).  AUMI is a software interface that was developed specifically to enable people who have very little voluntary mobility to create and perform electronic musical sounds in order to participate in solo and ensemble improvisation.  This two-hour open house will discuss the uses of AUMI in home, educational and therapeutic settings, as well as demonstrate an open drum circle collaboration using percussion instruments and the AUMI software interface .  


This open house initiates a series of three workshops in the Hudson Valley area to educate teachers, therapists, aides and parents in how to use AUMI with improvisation and  drumming. The AUMI interface in use At Abilities First, Inc. School since 2007 will be introduced by DLI executive director Pauline Oliveros.  DLI AUMI Technical Assistant Jaclyn Heyen and  Abilities First, Inc. Occupational Therapist/musician Leaf Miller will demonstrate how to use AUMI.  After the demos the public will be invited to participate in the music making.  AUMI is free to download from www.deeplistening.org/adaptiveuse and is  intended to  facilitate and empower musical expression for students with disabilities.   

We Made Our Goal!!

 We are proud to announce Deep Listening Institute has received $15000 from over 200 contributions through United States Artists, a nationwide grant-making, arts advocacy organization whose mission is to invest in America's finest artists and illuminate the value of artist to society, for Improvisation Across

Abilities.  The project was initiated for funding on the USA ARTISTS web site in December 2010 and
we reached our goal on February 26 2011.

Music for Everyone - Adaptive Use Musical Instruments

The Deep Listening Institute has been selected to participate in United States Artists, a nationwide grant-making, arts advocacy organization whose mission is to invest in America's finest artists and illuminate the value of artist to society. Through United States Artist, the Deep Listening Institute is currently seeking funding support for the Adaptive Use Musical Instruments Project.

The goal is to provide community outreach in 2011 with three workshops in the Hudson Valley NY area to educate teachers, therapists, aides and parents in how to use improvisation, drumming and the Adaptive Use Musical Instruments (AUMI) Software. This software facilitates and empowers musical expression for students with disabilities. AUMI seeks to transform the societal assumption about who can play music by dissolving the barriers between ability and disability.

Please check out our United States Artist page.
